I’ve been sitting here staring at my computer trying to figure out some clever, cute little way to start this post. For like half an hour I’ve been doing that. Then I realized nobody wants to read anything this morning anyway, they just want to know if they’re one of the 5 winners of the Great Gargantuan Giftmas Giveaway.
So all that time, that entire half hour, could have been spent doing something else entirely. And at this time of year there’s no shortage of things that need to get done. That half hour would have been much better put to use napping. Or staring at a lamp. Two of the things I seem to think are very, VERY important when I’m overwhelmed.
I’m pretty good at handling a lot of tasks at once, but every once in a while my eyes go big and round, my mouth drops open a little bit and I go from highly respected “In control Karen” to “Every single thought in my head is a big black scribble that I can’t make sense of Karen”. I often think of ordering a heart defibrillator on-line. I’m very positive a quick touch of those paddles to my temples would snap me right back into action. I’d maybe even be able to speak Finnish afterwards.
Look at that. I forgot. You want to know if you’re one of the winners of The Great Gargantuan Giftmas Giveaway. Sorry. Like I mentioned a bit earlier I’m suffering from debilitating case of Black Scribble Brain at the moment.
The list of winners is in the order. So the first winner gets first pick, the second winner gets second pick, and so on.
Congratulations to the winners!
If you see your name and comment in the list email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to pick your two prizes!
If you DIDN’T win but have been wanting Rough Linen forever, Tricia has dropped the price of ALL Rough Linen (excluding already reduced bundles) by 20% for today only. She has NEVER done this before. It’s a Black Friday, one time only sale, for only 24 hours.
I’ll be decorating my house for Christmas this weekend so it’s all ready for December 1st. I’m doing fairly well with my Christmas Pledge this year actually. I’ve bought all but two presents, addressed, written and stamped all the Christmas cards, made some cookie dough and chugged my first carton of egg nog.
All that will be left to do in December is eat shortbread cookies and eat shortbread cookies. Which I’m not sure I’ll have time for because I’ll be so busy eating shortbread cookies.
Have a good weekend and I’ll see you on Monday.
